    Quick 36, $1995 delivered. It's a single hydro, not a belt drive. The
    company link is up at the top of the page on the right. I haven't had any problems with mine, and it mulches just fine. It's compact, lightweight, and easy to manuever. I've never used any of the mowers you have listed above but I think you should seriously consider the Quick 36.

    I'm an exmark guy sooo.................

    But seriously,I'd go with a 36" rather than a 32" if you have no gates to contend with.

    Mulching should not be a problem.
